Hacking the Wetware – Compromising Fortune 500 Companies with Social Engineering

Social Engineering (SE) is one of the most severe threats to security and privacy as 90% of cyber attacks start with a social engineering attempt. This talk outlines updated real-world SE examples, and seemingly innocuous information that could compromise a company. Learn the methods SEs use to mine data, pick targets, choose pretexts, and exploit behavior to own companies, and how women are uniquely skilled as SEs – from a 2016 and 2017 DEFCON SE Capture the Flag winner.

This was presented at Security Fest 2018.
